SWBAT: USE PROPER GRAPHING
TECHNIQUES TO GRAPH DATA
SWBAT: INTERPRET DATA FROM A GRAPH
INFORMATION
Instructions
 Get a blank piece of paper.
 Fold it Hotdog and Hamburger to make even
quarters. Mark the lines.
Continued…
 Number each quarter of the
paper starting in the top left
moving clockwise.

 Label each section as follows:
 1. Data Chart
 2. Distance Vs. Time
 3. Speed Vs. Time
 4. Acceleration Vs. Time

Section 2
 Draw a graph that relates distance and time.
Remember we are controlling what time we take
measurements and the recording the response. (DRY
MIX)
Distance in meters
Time in Seconds
Section 3
 Remember that speed=distance/time. And that
we only need to be concerned with the change in
time when we look at speed.
 Calculate the speed the object is traveling each
second and make a graph that relates speed (which
we are calculating) and time (which we are
choosing)(DRY MIX).
Section 4
 Acceleration is changes in velocity. Using the
previous graph as a data source, draw a graph that
relates acceleration (calculated) and time (which was
chosen.
